Abraham Lincoln’s letters

Posted on April 25, 2008 by


The University of Rochester has scanned in their collection of letters to and from Lincoln and Seward. You can read a transcription of the letters or view the actual letters scanned in. In particular a fascinating one was a letter from Lincoln to James McDougall March 14, 1862 where Lincoln proses that it would be cheaper to buy slaves freedom at $400 each than it would be to fight a war with the South.
